Stopped off here of the way back from the beautiful elafonissi beach. Being the beginning of April, not many restaurants were open. However, we had a warm welcome from the waiter who was opening the restaurant for the first time this season. Even with a limited menu, the food we had was delicious (especially the mousakka!!!) We were lucky enough... More

It's a taverna which helps customers of the Glykeria Hotel to have their food fresh and yammy. Run by Glykeria herself and her two brothers, it delivers authentic Greek country food and very moderate prices - but one may immediately forget about money, finding him/herself on the veranda practically above sea, at a table full of great appetizers and main...

Our party of four agreed that this was probably the best food we had for our whole holiday. We were greeted by the extremely friendly and helpful guy who was serving. He explained different dishes to us to help us make our choices (pies, pork tenderloin, chicken in honey, roasted lamb, fried zucchini balls, local wine and beer). The view... More

Really enjoyed the food we ordered at this restaurant, which we stopped by on the way to the beach. Particularly enjoyed the pork knucklebone.

Ok. I am from Crete and I think that these fellows have taken the traditional Cretan dishes to a whole other level. Well done!!!! Oh and there is also the sun setting in the water right in front of your table.

We found this place when we were looking for hotels on this side of Crete and even though we didn't stay here, we did come here to eat. The food was absolutely delicious, so good we came here a second time and were just as satisfied. And the view made it all the more inviting.
